Dont know why but everytime i try to open an application within a CD-ROM, or during the loading of a CD-ROM it gives me this error msge:

Title: "16 bit Windows Subsystem"
Contents: "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Windows applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application."
Options: "Close" and "Ignore"

Can anyone help and explain what it means, solutions, etc? Thanks

does making the files private make it 'accessible' (the CD)?

click here and click on XP_Fix.EXE


Do the following. Rename the existing file autoexec.nt to autoexec.old (make sure you have not got your system files hidden). Inside the windows folder there should be one called "repair". Within this folder there should be a copy of autoexec.nt. Make a copy of the file and place in the orignal location
